Architectural Professional, contractors prepare for new construction projects in KwaZulu-Natal

In just less than a month, the KwaZulu-Natal Construction Expo will be taking place from 20 -21 February at the Durban Exhibition Centre in Durban.

With over R200 billion government expenditure in infrastructure over the coming seven years, KwaZulu-Natal generates massive business opportunities for professionals operating in the construction sector.

The KZN Construction Expo brings together thousands of small contractors, architectural practitioners, engineers, quantity surveyors, property developers and government representatives who are looking for suppliers of products and services for their projects.

The Expo is an unprecedented opportunity to access KZN’s building and construction value chain in a unique setting allowing for prestigious visibility, interactive networking and on-site demonstrations.

The Architectural Essentials Corner will provide Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for architectural professionals from the South African Institute for Building Design (SAIBD) and is hosted as part of the KZN Construction Expo.

The South African Council for Architectural Profession (SACAP) has entered into a non-monetary trade agreement and will also be exhibiting at the event, while further participating in some of the CPD activities.

The Architectural Essential Corner provides CPD hours and progressive learning for the architectural professionals through a collaborative forum for the transformation of the architectural profession in the pursuit of excellence. The Architectural Essential Corner programme provides an opportunity for capacity-building, business networking and knowledge transfer among built environment professionals operating in the local construction market place.

The extended training programme also features content designed specifically for construction professionals and hosts an interactive panelists’ discussion known as the KZN Stakeholder Engagement Forum.  The Stakeholder Engagement Forum unites KZN leaders, MECs and development experts to engage with the audience on issues affecting the state of the local industry. This forum is a unique opportunity to learn about and influence local policy as it pertains to the built environment.

Sponsored by Leads2Business, SA Lead Detection and Spider Mini-Cranes, and supported by over 60 associations, media partners and exhibiting companies, the KZN Construction Expo is an unprecedented opportunity to access KZN’s building and construction value chain in a unique setting allowing for prestigious visibility, interactive networking and on demonstration.
